Return now to dying Mars in its last age of glory. A world of flashing swords and choking sands, of winking courtesans and lantern-lit canal cities. Mars, where romance and heartbreak are two sides of the same obsidian chit.

Where lost cities are buried in the dunes, and dry oceans stretch out between the last daring bastions of civilization. Where the First Martians, the monument-builders, are but a faded memory. And the Red Martians have become decadent and capricious in their last days. 

Find yourself digging for someone else’s treasure in the lost tombs of Chiaro, or spitting defiance at the Roundhead priests of wild Ziggur, or dashing across the towered crypts of Vance with your long-lost lover. Lock steel with the Princess Invincible, even as your hand reaches towards your flintlaser for insurance.

Cavaliers of Mars includes:

  • A vibrant setting with cultures, careers, characters, and dozens of locations, all organized to get you right into the world of Mars!
  • An all-new system combining your character’s motivations, history, and beliefs with strategic swashbuckling action!
  • Astrology, crafting, psychic powers, and much more!

Created by Rose Bailey

Written by Rose Bailey, Benjamin Baugh, Storn Cook, Steffie de Vaan, Meghan Fitzgerald, Jordan Goldfarb, Danielle Lauzon, Ethan Skemp, Lauren Stone, Travis Stout, and senior writer Audrey Whitman

Note that while Cavaliers of Mars is a black & white book, we are two Hardcover versions. The usual black & white edition, plus a version using the Standard Color Heavyweight process to offer a book on a heavier paper stock for more vibrant printing.

I very much like this game, and am glad to have gotten it in hardcover, but that pleasure is a bit greyed because of two issues with the text.

The first is minor: putting the two page world map near the center of the book, where the binding's bulk eats up about a half-inch column of the map's middle graphic, was a clumsy layout choice. Fortunately having the PDF mitigates this.

The second problem is a more critical issue: the index is a gory disaster. It's so jumbled I at first thought it was a printing error, but it's the same in the PDF, so the cause must be the primary formatting of the text. The least of the problem are entries that were supposed to be sub-entries but almost never indented properly. The worst problem is that at least half the subjects are scattered seemingly randomly in no accordance with alphabetical or conceptual sense.

To illustrate, the first part of the "Z" section is reproduced as follows (skipping the page numbers):

My story with Cavaliers of Mars
I backed the game for a physical copy. I was excited with the setting and given the experience of Rose Bailey I was confident to get a good swashbuckler game in Mars.

I received the book and when I was ready to test the game with friends a week ago I started to read the rules with more detail.

I liked the ideas of the combat when I read the jumpstart but I was expecting some tweaks in the corebook. Having three Motivations and three Methods, I felt the combat was a game of chance and the only attribute valid was Speed beside some talents.

I decided to give it a chance and see how it works but when I was reading the talent Pistoleer I trigger a chain-reaction of frustration. Let me explain:

The talent gives you the change of reducing the Reload cost in Stunt dice. Sounds interesting but the problem is the Ranged Weapon section says reloading is automatic in the Break phase (the end of the round). So why I need stunt dice?...See more

Hi, Matias! To answer your questions:

1) The Pistoleer Talent is in error. It should read:

"You may spend a stunt die to reload rather than waiting until the break phase."

That means that you can use a stunt die to reload and attack again with the weapon.

2) Most weapons do 1 damage, as described in the Combat section. You can use the equipment table to approximate anything else you need.

3) Most large animals are viable mounts for cavaliers, as are large objects in general. The bestiary includes several.

1. Is an errata of the game?
2. Does the Spider Rifle do the same damage as a flint laser or a dagger?
Customer avatar
Rose B April 10, 2019 8:25 pm UTC
1. There is no errata at this point.

2. Use the flintlaser stats.

Anyone reading Matias B's comment above, be warned the poster has been banned from multiple other forums for copy-posting this screed and attacking "Cavaliers of Mars" in general. Their dull-witted outrage isn't worth your time.

I am thinking of purchasing. I love Planets and Romance books like John Carter. Do you think you could post a more even handed review?

The Standard Heavyweight edition does NOT have color interior, correct?

No versions of the game have color interiors.

What's the engine/system powering the setting?

DEIMOS is a new set of rules for the setting. I'd call it medium complexity, on the same level as Cortex Plus or Cinematic Unisystem.

For most situations, you have traits rated in stepped dice: motivations like For Self and For Love, methods like With Grace and With Force, and careers like Priest and Cavalier. You roll them as a pool, then add the highest two together.

For combat, you use a "hand" of 10-sided dice in different colors for strikes, parries, and stunts. Everyone rolls their dice, and then the GM counts down from 10. When the number hits one of your dice, you get to act.

Crafting under pressure is similar to combat, with different dice representing different actions.

There are also systems for psychic powers and astrology.

I hope that helps!

The Exhausted Condition on the character sheet is missing its "T".

Thanks for the very cool game!

Original elektronisch
Eingescanntes Buchformat
Diese eBooks wurden durch einen tatsächlichen Scan eines gedruckten Exemplars dieses Buches erstellt; das Ergebnis wurde dann in ein PDF umgewandelt. Jede Seite wurde durch eine Optical Character Recognition (OCR) Software analysiert, um den gedruckten Text zu erkennen. Das Ergebnis des OCR-Vorgangs wurde dann unsichtbar auf den Seiten platziert, damit du den Text durchsuchen kannst. Trotzdem kann es vorkommen, dass Text vor manchen Hintergründen sowie an Handschriften angelehnte Schriftarten nicht von der OCR-Software erkannt wurde - diese Texte können leider nicht durchsucht werden. Ähnliches gilt für einige besonders dicke Bücher, die umgewandelt werden mussten und daher keinen durchsuchbaren Text enthalten. Einige besonders alte und vergriffene Bücher können sogar nur in Form eingescannter Bilder angeboten werden.
Originär elektronische Formate
Diese eBooks wurden direkt aus einer elektronischen Original-Datei erstellt und sind daher komplett durchsuchbar. Auch ihre Datei-Größe ist meist deutlich kleiner als die von Büchern, die eingescannt werden mussten. Die allermeisten neueren Bücher liegen in originär elektronischer Form vor.
